i work about it day in and day out. when i pump i get almost NOTHING barely a ounce but when I nurse for whatever reason she fills up for a good 4 hours! weird i know so i CONSTANTLY question my supply.
I never once did when I nursed Maddy...I have a bit this time...and I don't really think that I had anything to worry about...it just meant so much to me to be able to nurse her that I was fearing the worst!
I have started questioning my supply a little bit. Lily will be 8 months on Saturday and she only wants to nurse about 5 times a day and she sleeps 10 hours at night without nursing. I'm still leaking and stuff so I know my supply is okay, but I worry that she's cutting back so much and I'm afraid by the time she is one she won't want to nurse anymore.
With my first I stopped questioning when he was a few months old and was never really concerned again unless I was sick. He nursed very frequently but he gained weight really well. Sometimes in the beginning he would gain 10 oz a week!
With Gabriel all I think about is my supply! I am seriously just counting down the days till he is one and I can let it go a bit!
I have questioned my supply lately, only because I am pumping less than I used to! But I can still see that little mouth fill up with milk, so I just have to believe in my body! Also, around 6 months when his growth really started slowing down, that sent panic alarms off in my body...even though I KNOW it's normal!
